Mechanism of albendozole action as a part of the drug is disruption
of carbohydrate metabolism in helminthes, which leads to its destruction and withdrawal from the animal body.

After oral administration albendozole is rapidly absorbed by gastrointestinal tract and penetrated into organs and tissues; it is mainly eliminated from the body with urine and faeces. Due to its egg-killing action it reduces pasture infestation by helminthes.

Mechanism of the closantel action is inhibition of oxidation phosphorylation in parasites.

Specific drug action is stimulation of ATF-enzyme which leads to disruption of phosphorylation process and electron transport, thus changing metabolism energy of parasite and leading to its death.

Albendazole and closantel included in the drug having synergistic effect, cause death to internal parasites and external parasites of ruminants, including trematodes, nematodes, cestodes and those resistant to benzimidazole, as well as gadfly larvae and sarcoproid mites.

Alklozan 20% - 100 mg / kg body weight, and Alklozan 10% - 200 mg / kg body weight.

Deworming of animals should be carried out twice a year: two weeks before withdrawal to pasture and before stabling. Treatment of animals against hypothermosis, eodemagenosis and oestrosis shall be made after end of summer gadfly.

Treatment of sheep against psoroptosis shall be carried
out in any period of the year upon prescription.

The drug is used for deworming of cattle, sheep and goats in the following diseases:

- fascioliasis, dicrocoeliosis, monieziasis, dictyocaulosis, ostertagiosis, haemonchosis, trichostrongylosis, cooperiosis, esophagostomiasis, eodemagenosis;

The drug is used for treatment of hypodermosis in cattle and oestrosis and psoroptosis in sheep.

No side effects have been observed by using the drug in recommended doses.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the drug components. Do not use simultaneously with organochlorine and chlororganic antiparasitic drugs.

The drug shall not be used in acute fascioliasis, during breeding period, in sick animals with infectious diseases and emaciated animals.

It is also restricted to use the drug in sheep, goats and pigs in the first half, and in cows - in the first trimester of pregnancy. Do not use the drug in milking animals producing milk for human consumption.

SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS: Prior to mass deworming every batch of the drug shall be pre-tested in a small group of animals (5-10 animals). In absence of complications within 3 days you can start treatment in all livestock.

Meat of cattle and sheep can be used for food purposes 20 days after the last
drug administration.

During compulsory slaughter prior specified deadlines, such meat can be used as food for furbearing animals and for production of meat and bone tankage.
